It also looks as though the small offerings from Ryanair and Flybe won't be returning next year
I don't think either FR or BE have their Summer 2013 schedules on sale yet, at least not in full. FAR too early to come to any conclusions about what they will or won't offer

Now I havent agreed with Jumpseater in the past, however his post is spot on TimmyW. Everything is pure speculation, and knowing how commercial departments tend to keep tight lipped for good reason. How someone at an unnamed (Freepress?) paper would be privy to so much stuff that you claim is way beyond me.

You have speculated yourself pug.

And then there is the comment that an agreement with a new loco has been signed. Absolute nonsense!

I have, however I like to think that people know when Im speculating, and they can take it or leave it. For Instance, I can say with a degree of certainty that there will be an announcement about routes from HUY very shortly, but I can speculate that they will probably not end up actually happening..

Who said new Loco?

If you read Jumpseater's post, he states clearly that someone he knows at DSA said they have recently signed a contract with a loco.

I can safely say, this is not correct.

Note he didnt specify who, possibly Wizz having just renewed a contract? Possibly tge multitude of low cost airlines they have probably been talking to.

I will only believe you are correct when this elusive article actually appears, and it is based on hard evidence.

No you can't say that's not correct, you are wrong again.

I have made a statement of fact.

Someone I know who works at DSA whom I spoke with today, says that DSA have recently signed a contract with a LoCo.

That is a factual statement, read whats written, not what you think is written.

If however, you are making a statement of fact, (I'll concede statistically the odds of that are possible, however remote), that no deal has been signed, it would mean you are in a senior commercial position within the DSA 'group', otherwise you wouldn't know that for a fact. You would have also just released what would be considered by any airport or airline onto a public forum, sensitive commercially confidential information. On that basis I think it likely that
a/ You're telling porkies ...
b/ You've just invented an exciting and novel way to claim your P45 ...



Pug, I know we've crossed words in the past, however, ta for that.

Thomas Cook expanding at DSA for S13

Thomas Cook has added a 2nd weekly flight to Dalaman, as well as a new flight to Enfidha (Tunisia) operated by Nouvelair.

TCX S13 programme out of DSA :

Mon - DLM (TCX)
Tue - PMI (TCX)
Fri - DLM (TCX) and PMI (TCX)
Sun - NBE (BJ)

5 weekly flights so far! Well done, TC!

It would be nice to see also Bodrum (in a W with a Turkish carrier) which has been by TOM or an additional Greek destination not served anymore by TOM (e.g. Heraklion or Zakinthos).

I flew from DSA this morning on business to Gdansk. I was struck by how full the carpark was. I had to park in the small extension beyond/ to the side of the carpark exit.

Although negativety takes pride of place on here, you wouldn't realise that around 800k per year use the airport and so the car park should look fairly full this time of year.

Ohh I don't know, for example I'm positive Timmy is in the current vernacular of my daughters, 'owned' by this thread, with a staggering number of 'epic fails' in his postings.


We were told that an announcement that Wizz starting at Manchester was only days away on the fifth September.
destinations
news

Perhaps they've forgotton to add Manchester with all the excitement about launching Tel Aviv. Still I can still get to Gdansk next year from DSA, suits me.


Doncaster Free Press
3rd week with nothing about it Timmy, looks like you're 'owned' by your contact too.


NB 'Owned has become part of standard slang, and typically follows severe defeat or humiliation, usually in an amusing way'

I must admit, I thought the news would have come sooner.

As for the extra Thomas Cook flights, I wouldn't expect these to happy now as they have had a U Turn at HUY and will be operating from there too now.

Still nothing on the cards in terms of good news for DSA. Next summer will see less passengers than this in all likeyhood as it doesn't seem FlyBe or Ryanair will be returning with any flights.

Dont talk daft.

It is obvious Peel only ever acquired the site in order to get their hands on the land. Do you ever wonder why LBA, EMA and even now HUY are getting new routes but DSA haven't had a new route announced for a good 18 month. There is zero chance of any expansion, only more loses.

Its way too early to know what Ryanair are doing next year.

I'd be interested to see whether DSA features in plans for the relaunched bmi regional..

The problem with DSA and this also applies to a number of Regional Airports is the continual reduction of passengers using the airport.The question that you should be asking yourself is why would an airline introduce new routes to airports which have falling passenger figures.DSA at the moment has negative growth and the downward trend seems to be growing.Would new routes attract more people through the airport terminal?That is the sort of question that the likes of Thomas Cook,Thomsons and Ryanair will be asking themselves.At the end of the day they are there to make money.The likes of Newcastle,Leeds,East Midlands and Manchester are still increasing passenger numbers. So if you were managing an airline where would you introduce new routes?I'm sure it would be at an airport which is increasing its terminal throughput despite the recession.

If BMI regional was to offer any routes I would expect Aberdeen , The airport had been chasing that on the route shop .
But again I would say what's needed is a well timed and frequent route to Amsterdam
